Since 1987, Oxford University Innovation has been responsible for creating spinout companies based on academic research generated within and owned by the University of Oxford, and in recent years has spun out 15-20 new companies every year.
Over £2.5bn in external investment has been raised by Oxford University Innovation spinouts since 2010, and ten of our current portfolio are currently listed in London and New York.
The creation of new spinout companies, most of which are listed below, also channels millions of pounds back into University research, benefits local economic development and has created many new jobs in the region.
The company has been created by the Dementia Discovery Fund. The Company’s mission is to develop disease-modifying therapeutics that restore endo-lysosomal function and abrogate neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s disease and other dementias.
